share close

Take a trip with Black Women Stitch as Lisa whisks listeners away on a 24-hour adventure through LA’s Fashion District. From fabric shopping sprees and meeting Josie from LA Finch Fabric to diving into the colorful fabric scene, she shares it all. Lisa dishes out travel tips for anyone who likes to buy pieces while they’re traveling. Plus, which fashion district is better, LA or NY? There’s so much to talk about, but don’t worry this episode is much shorter than a commute in LA traffic!


Lisa Woolfork is an associate professor of English specializing in African American literature and culture. Her teaching and research explore Black women writers, Black identity, trauma theory, and American slavery. She is the founder of Black Women Stitch, the sewing group where Black lives matter. She is also the host/producer of Stitch Please, a weekly audio podcast that centers on Black women, girls, and femmes in sewing. In the summer of 2017, she actively resisted the white supremacist marches in her community, Charlottesville, Virginia. The city became a symbol of lethal resurging white supremacist violence.
